** ''Starsky and Hutch'' was definitely big in America, but it was ''massive'' in Britain. [=BBC1=] ran the series well into the 1980s (and it was one of the few imported series to top the ratings), David Soul made more visits to the upper reaches of the pop charts than at home (including having two #1s), {{Channel 4}} had a night devoted to the series in 1999 (including running the pilot and the never-before-shown-in-Britain episode "The Fix" - omitted because of its depiction of heroin use), and the show regularly turns up on cable channels.

* ''Series/TheWestWing'': It is almost ''more'' popular in Britain than in the United States and there was a noticeable spike in the uptake of digital TV when ''The West Wing'' moved from terrestrial broadcasting (the series was actually first shown on SkyOne before [[ChannelHop moving to]] ChannelFour). While the States obviously loved the show enough to give it 19 Emmys, Britain appears to consider it one of the greatest American exports of all time, as mentioned in John O'Farrell's ''An Utterly Impartial History of Britain'':

* When [=S4C=] (ChannelFour's Welsh counterpart) premiered its sports (but eventually just football) show ''Sgorio'' in the late 1980's, it gained a cult following among English-speaking viewers because it aired highlights from other European football leagues (such as Germany's Bundesliga, Spain's La Liga, and Italy's Serie A) that were not yet seen on British television before the advent of pay TV. Channel 4 would get the memo and debut its own international football show in 1992.

** Plans are underway for the current running ''Ang Probinsyano'' to be aired outside the country in Spanish speaking Latin America. Before that would happen the show would be memorable for a running meme among Filipinos here and abroad (which caught other people by surprise outside the country) using the series theme song (''Wag Ka Nang Umiyak'' by Gary V, originally from Sugarfree) as a background for edited scenes of TV series and movies made internationally (some of these videos made by fans, through, feature the slow motion and zooming scenes similar to those used in the series).

* The recent trend of superhero shows are already mildly popular among Americans, but don't usually top ratings (with the exception of ''{{Series/Arrow}}'' and ''Series/TheFlash'', which are doing wonders for Creator/TheCW). In Canada however, many of these same shows are usually in the top 10, if not top 30 of the week, mainly thanks to {{Creator/CTV}}, Canada's largest television network, moving away from reality programming to scripted shows, a move which has deemed very successful.

It helps through that the DC TV series are US-Canadian co-productions.
** When Philippine cable channel JACK TV debuted Arrow in 2012, no one expected that the show, plus the other DC superhero programs, would make a hit among Filipino viewers. Today, Arrow, together with The Flash and Supergirl, have Filipino fanbases, and Colton Haynes from Arrow came for a viist in the country in 2015. (The same goes for Legends of Tomorrow, which airs on cable station Warner TV.)
* ETC, a channel under Solar Entertainment, is the reason for the smash ratings and huge success for their broadcasts of ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' and its spinoff ''Series/TheOriginals'', today both shows have huge fans among Filipinos. When TVD aired a Carol Banawa song on a Season 7 episode, Filipinos all over the globe rejoiced, including local viewers.

** Do you know ''Series/KidouKeijiJiban'' was insanely popular on the 90s back in Panama and Honduras? No? Well, now you do. In fact there's Spanish fansubs of the show on YouTube because of it! The show also aired in Brazil, too!

** Initially, Toei didn't believe there was enough interest to start importing either subbed or dubbed [=DVD=]s and Shout Factory (who handles most of the DVD distribution for ''PowerRangers'') revealed that they had no plan to release any ''Super Sentai'' shows on DVD... until 2014, when they announced plans to release subbed [=DVDs=] of ''Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger''. Shout! Factory did later state they have intentions to eventually release all Super Sentai series in North America should the series stay popular enough. (And the plan worked- ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'' is coming out in November 2015 because of it!)

*** This was also the same case for the Philippines. At least one of the series and its spin-off programs were broadcast here at one point. ABS-CBN was the first channel to broadcast the franchise in 1988.

* On ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', Jerry and George attempt to invoke this by pitching their failed NBC sitcom ''[[ShowWithinAShow Jerry]'' to a Japanese TV station. They got this idea because a two-second clip of Jerry was used in the opening credits of a Japanese game show, which got him hundreds of royalty checks that were worth about 10 cents each. Unfortunately, the events of the episode's B-plot interfered and made their efforts unsuccessful.
